Publisher's Description

Sinner’s Creed is the uncensored memoir of Scott Stapp, Grammy Award–winning leader of the multiplatinum rock band CREED. During CREED’s decade of dominance and in the years following the band’s breakup, Scott struggled with drugs and alcohol, which led not only to a divorce, but also to a much-publicized suicide attempt in 2006. Now clean, sober, and in the midst of a highly successful solo career, Scott has finally come full circle—a turnaround he credits to his renewed faith in God.

In Sinner's Creed, Scott shares his story for the first time—from his fundamentalist upbringing, the rise and fall of CREED, and his ongoing battle with addiction, the rediscovery of his faith, and the launch of his solo career. The result is a gripping memoir that is proof positive that God is always present in our lives, despite the colossal mess we sometimes make of them.

    This review was written for Sinner's Creed.
    Sinners Creed is surprisingly a good read. I checked it out at the local library but kept putting it off. Finally, I reluctantly picked it up and started reading it. Scott Stapp was quite candid in this book. He discusses his growing up years and his admiration for his grandfather. He tells of wanting a father and happy to welcome his mothers new husband as his father, whom even adopts Scott. His step father becomes abusive and quotes scripture to make himself seem as though what he was doing made him a good Christian. Scott tells of his struggles with his faith with God through the years. Then getting kicked out of college and then ultimately starting a band that eventually became the successful Creed.

    Scott becomes addicted to prescription drugs, attempts suicide, and becomes an alcoholic. He becomes a single father and discusses how he managed that on the road touring with his band. The band breaks up that causes many hard feeling between members. He continues to struggle with his faith through it all. After years of prayers, he meets and marries his lifesaver. What an inspiring, faithful, and amazing woman.

    The book, also, includes song lyrics that Scott had written. He really does have a gift with words.

    I think this book is a good book to recommend to others.

    4 stars.

    This review was written for Sinner's Creed.
    Sinner's Creed was interesting in that Scott mentions most of his songs, and describes periods of his life when he wrote them. It's always intriguing to hear what a singers/songwriter is thinking with his lyrics. But, beyond that, there are so many loose ends. I appreciated his struggle with faith, but I'm not sure that I understand Scott's stance beyond recognizing he is a sinner. I would have really liked to see some resolution or more information about what happened with his family as well. Overall, it was an easy read, and quick. But, it lacked the element of learning for me--difficult to relate to.

    Sinner's Creed is the honest heartbreaking story of Scott Stapp from childhood to present. Scott suffered greatly during his life including his birth father walking out, physical abuse from his step father, alcohol abuse, being wanted only for his money and depression. The book tells his life story including the formation of Creed and how he is trying to get his life back in order.

    This review was written for Sinner's Creed.
    Scott Stapp, lead singer for the rock band Creed, tells of his life from early childhood to the present, including an abusive stepfather, growing up in church, and how the band came to be. He is honest about his addiction and the steps he is taking to overcome the problem. I thought the book was okay with some interesting stories but I am not a fan.

    This review was written for Sinner's Creed - eBook.
    He had to be brave to let us into his life like this. The book has some good elements, but a lot of it was rambling and meaningless, or trivial. I am always interested in literature, so his education caught my attention, but it was only fleetingly mentioned. Sometimes he didn't say much about an incident or interaction, just a flat statement. I do appreciate the glowing comments about his beloved wife, children and mother-in-law. This book looks like a showcase for his lyric-writing talents. His story had some insightful moments and some valuable lessons, but I am not a fan, and I have nothing in common with him, so this was not striking any chords with me.
